nation. >> you're better equipped. >> reporter: the commander of u.s.-led international coalition forces that drove saddam hussein out of kuwait in 1991 has died. general herbert norman schwarzkopf was a much decorated combat soldier in vietnam as more popularly known to the public as "stormin' norman". it was a coalition of 30 countries original niced by then president george h.w. bush that succeeded in defeating iraqis. president bush remains hospitalized in houston in methodist hospital he had a statement that reads in part. he is one of the great military leaders of his generation. a distinguished member of the long gray line hailing from west point, general norman schwarzkopf to me epitomized duty, service, country and creed that defended our country's freedom and seen the nation through our most trying international crisis. he was appointed general and appointed commander-in-chief of u.s. central command. he prepared a detailed plan for defense of saudi oil fields against the iraqis. general colin powell released this statement in part, with the passing of general norman schwarzkop
that divides russian society. but make no mistake, it is a power play. it's a response to that u.s. act, as you mentioned, a law signed by obama a couple of weeks ago intended to penalize, sanction russian officials connected with this particular custody case and this tax evasion case in russia. >> so matthew, this law would go into effect january 1st. is there any chance that those cases that are pending where the paperwork is finalized and where people are expecting their children, essentially, in a month or two would be allowed to go through? >> well, there is a question mark hanging over those. there are 52 children, according to the kremlin, that are in the middle of this adoption process with u.s. parents. the law, as you say, starts on january the 1st, but it's only a couple of days until then. so unless that can be finalized, my expectation is that that will be put on hold and indeed that's what russian officials are saying, that they don't think this law has been enacted from january the 1st, these children should be allowed to go to the united states. instead there's been a call for r
, thanks very much. we're looking by the way on left-hand side of your screen live on the floor of the u.s. senate. don't you know, not much happening there. patti ann: all right. republican congressman louie gohmert is responding to those comments from senator reid that we just heard, firing back at accusations that republicans are refusing to compromise. let's listen. >> i can totally sympathize with reid's remark that he can not imagine our consciences in the house because you would have to have one to imagine ours. and he has shown repeatedly, over three years of no budget? come on. the guy has to have no conscience or he would have been embarrassed and given up leadership on his own if he had any conscience whatsoever. we have passed a bill to deal with the fiscal cliff. harry reid is becoming the ultimate cliff diver here by saying we're not going to even let our house, the senate house function. we're going to dive off the cliff and blame the republicans at every ledge down the way. gregg: cliff diving a new political sport. and senator lindsey graham also speaking out suggesting th

, you know, when we think senator demint we think of a tea party stronghold within the u.s. senate and helped and also hurt a number of republican candidates. who were they? >> reporter: that's right. great. let's start with the senators now. obviously, who he helped elect. this is the positive side of his millions and his work. marco rubio, pat toomey. very conservative, anti-tax, anti-government purists in the mold of jim demint. however, he also backed in republican primaries a number of republican candidates who simply were not electable according to the republican establishment and the establishment was right. for example, remember christine o'donnell, i'm not a witch, from delaware. ken buck of colorado. and others. so those are some of the reasons why he definitely has ruffled many a-feather with the party leaders and i have to tell you first thing i saw when the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell released a statement today was making the point that demint had, quote, uncompromising service. didn't have to read between the lines too much to see there's a backhanded com

to reach an agreement or the u.s. economy will go off the so- called "fiscal cliff." that's when automatic spending increases and cuts would take effect. reaching a deal won't be easy because both sides are involved in a high stakes political blame game. >> we are here in washington working while the members of the house of representatives are out watching movies and watching the kids play soccer and basketball and doing all kinds of things. they should be here. >> i told the president we would be happy to look at wah he proposes but the truth is we are coming up against a hard deadline and as i said this is a conversation we should have had months ago. >> reporter: democrats want to extend the bush-era tax cuts to everyone except those americans making $250,000 or more a year. many republicans are against any tax increases. most americans just want something to be done. >> people are just tired of partisanship and they want everyone to come together. >> reporter: if lawmakers don't reach a deal by january 1, many economists are concerned it could eventually lead to another recession. i'm
. >> we have four minutes left. with regard to the state of the u.s. economy, you have some important votes cast before the lame-duck session is over. what is your level of confidence about the future of the u.s. economy right now? >> i am not really optimistic. i think that we have a short- term solution. the president wants to spend more money. i understand that. he also wants to raise taxes on people over $250,000 and he will get part of that. he will have a bill that says we have to give everyone a tax cut, who will vote against that? he has the ability to wait. that is number one. we are trillions of dollars in the hole. not just $16 trillion but $60 trillion or $70 trillion. this will come back to haunt us. we will have a severe economic problem. i hope i am wrong. i hope there is a solution. unless something radical changes, we will see a severe economic problems and high inflation. >> you made the decision not to run again. what will you miss most about congress? >> i will miss the camaraderie. i was one of the founders of the republican study committee which started with four
children, but not out of 10 under privilege women in the u.s. lack supplies. many of these families are third-generation of the entitlement recipients in communities across america. in chicago's cook county, it costs $10 million a month to support them. some reports say next year, one half of all children in new york city will be bored to indigent parents. host: your point in all this? caller: my point is, the money that is being spent on these other entitlement programs have to be cut because these people are able to get out of work and make a nice living, whereas the elderly cannot. guest: i think the main thing to pay it to do about the federal budget -- and this is something that people say flippantly some times. at the u.s. government is an insurance company with an army. when we talk about the insurance company part, we are talking about medicare and social security, and to some degree medicaid. those are programs that benefit the middle class and the poor, mainly through retirement. the other thing that people talk about, those are very small parts in the federal budget compa
, it pays $285, a u.s. just put $200 ridicule in your truck. he spent $36 one-way on a bridge, $18 through the tunnel, next year it goes up to $48 for the bridge. $24 for the fort mchenry tunnel. i mean, nothing leaves nothing. it's getting out of hand. it used to be a pretty good deal to be a truck driver. now i am not so sure anymore. i just don't know what the next step is. . -- 2013 tax deal is scary me a little. host: -- that is just a portion of what is in the new york times this morning. next is mary in sun city, california. go ahead. we are listening. caller: i am in the rental business in california. i hear california is very big on welfare and section 8. i see there are so many programs where somebody gets to stay home and the government will pay a three-bedroom rent and they only pay $14 a month. they stay home for 10 years, 15 years, or whatever simply because they have children. being in the military, a lot of my friends, the parents work. but these people are not in the military and they get medical, they get food stamps, they get wic. there's never a change in the programs t
, the debate over the assault weapon ban and the testimony of one of the victims in the u.s. "the new york times"had this sense bowl and poignant photograph -- from our twitter page -- al joins us on the phone from new york. caller: good morning. with freedom comes great responsibility. owning a gun is a demonstration of freedom but also requires that you demonstrate responsibility for owning that weapon. i am a gun owner and i was a soldier at one time and i know what bullet can do to flesh and bone. as possibly an option, i think perhaps, like you drive a car, you have to have insurance to drive that car to protect yourself and others. perhaps we should have gun owners by a particular policy that protected from any accidents that happen. also, i think perhaps to get a gun, you need to have some kind of psychological profiling. the military does it and i was in, they call the day 201 file and to purchase the weapon, not just a background check, but have documentation that you have been counseled and you are fit to own a weapon. as far as the high-capacity magazines, no need for it. if you
a factory in china and sell cars. they can delay paying u.s. taxes on that indefinitely. but the money comes from the rent, as so-called passive income, they have to pay taxes on that immediately. this provision says if your a bank -- you can be late paying your taxes. it is going to be considered active income. it is quite valuable to them. it is kind of a gray area. in 1986 when they did big tax reform, they said that is active income and we should tax that money. host: we have been talking with sam goldfarb from cq roll call. thank you very much. >> explores the history and literary culture of all money -- of albany. tonight on c-span, a senate debate on the fiscal cliff. shaun donovan discusses it. harry reid and mitch mcconnell when back-and-forth on fiscal cliff issues and a proposal to raise the debt ceiling. here is part of their exchange. >> yesterday afternoon, i came to the floor and offered president obama's proposal on the fiscal cliff to show that neither he nor democrats in congress are acting in good faith in these negotiations. with just a few weeks ago before a potentially
amount of people. the u.s. military considers the weather as a weapon. i will leave it at that. there is intense stuff, i went to antarctica and it looked like a nuclear bomb had gone off over most of the ice. huge chunks of ice falling off but you do not hear that in the news. i know we have to wrap up. >> thank you. [applause] >> the house is in recess, expected to vote on three pieces of legislation including the intelligence policy bill for next year. no votes are scheduled tonight on the so-called fiscal cliff trade without any action by both chambers of congress, billions of dollars of tax increases and spending cuts are scheduled to officially begin tomorrow. while we wait for the house to come back into session, more from the economist magazine forum. this is on technological innovations and how they might change medical care in the coming year. >> thank you. i have the pleasure of talking about health care in 2013. 2013 is to be a big year for health care. there is an enormous amount of exciting research in global health and personalized madison. at the same time, the
, if we in fact see a hit to the economy, see a hit to market confidence, see a decline in the u.s. reputation around the world. >> right. >> how is that pain absorbed within the body politic and how does that force a solution? republicans are on the short side of this argument. the question is whether the house republican party is responsive to that pick. >> and more so now. i mean, i always said john boehner didn't have a lot of bargaining power before. he has none. he has basically acknowledged he has none by saying okay. it's up to harry reid and president obama. mitch mcconnell. because there is nothing left for me to do here. i want to read something in "the wall street journal" op-ed about who is to blame in this. here is what they said. to put this in raw political terms mr. boehner offered a break, offered to break a core gop principle on taxes and mr. obama offered him nothing he could take back to his rank and file in return. instead he has treated the talks as an extension of the election campaign traveling around the country at rally style events at which he berates re
, what goes on here? what goes on? >> yeah. well, they can actually find out where the u.s. government is hiding. so that's not -- they can't all be in dick cheney's secret location. they can shut pieces of it down, but it's not really sustainable, obviously. it will increase the pressure in the sense of crisis. that's going to lead to more turmoil in the markets. so it's not a reassuring thing for your creditors if you either hide or you're shuffling money around. but it does apply increased pressure in washington. you know, this is where the white house wanted the negotiations in a way. i'm not saying that you can cook up a debt crisis or anyone would want to, but the president and his negotiators wanted both of these things to be done together, not to have tax cuts and all the horse trading around that now. and then in a few months' time have to go through the whole thing but on less favorable ground for the white house at least than talk about the debt ceiling. it's much better that it's one negotiation, it's one round of massive uncertainty if there's anything good that comes out
and the accountability review board. the u.s. house of representatives committee on foreign affairs will hold a hearing on thursday, december 20 on the benghazi attacke. secretary clinton will be testifying. c-span will cover this on thursday at 1:00 p.m. eastern time. c-span cameras will be there. front page of the national journal this morning -- on tuesday he delivered the gop talking points about the need for more spending cuts as part of any deal, while downplaying the role of raising income-tax rates on wealthier earners, which the white house trumpets often. boosting rates on the rich, he said, would provide enough money to run the government for eight days. that has nothing to do with spending, getting spending in line. other than performing requisite task, mitch mcconnell has not emerged as a huge presence in the ongoing fiscal cliff narrative. that is a change from past budget and tax deals where his finger prints were evident, a fact that could affect the final outcome or subtlety of the deal. that the national journal reporting. paul is an independent in enterprise, alabama. go ahead. calle
